Our servers are assembled and configured by OVHcloud, to deliver you optimal performance. Our VPS servers are powered by Intel next-generation architecture, NVMe SSD storage, and a highly resilient infrastructure, to meet your needs.
A dedicated environment
You can use all of your hardware resources for hosting websites or business applications — and you get admin access to your virtual server, too. With our VPS range, you can manage your web projects in a server environment that is scaled to suit your usage.
Simplicity and independence
With our VPS solutions, you do not need to worry about hardware constraints (upgrading components, technical faults, etc.) — but you still get full control over your virtual server. You can choose from a wide range of pre-installed Linux and Windows operating systems — and web hosting control panels, too.
Traffic for your VPS server is unlimited*, with a maximum bandwidth of 2Gbit/s. This means you can host services or applications that require a high bandwidth, providing your customers with an optimal browsing experience at no extra cost.
*Excludes datacentres in the Asia-Pacific region.
Keep your data safe with our VPS backup options. The auto back-up option allows you to back up your data automatically and regularly. You can use the Snapshot option directly via the OVHcloud Control Panel, and take snapshot backups of your VPS in just a few clicks.
Our VPS solutions are perfect for hosting business applications in a production or pre-production environment. Our infrastructure offers minimal latency for your services, and hardware availability guaranteed by an SLA. This means you get constant, stable service.
Why choose VPS accommodation by OVHcloud Portugal?
Server location and IP geolocation are key factors in determining a site's Google rating. Netizens are more likely to click on a local site. Thus, if the target customer is based in Portugal, a VPS accommodation in the country itself is the most effective way to ensure fluid access to its services. All this is done by maintaining full control of their costs and being able to evolve without restrictions. Thanks to our teams, active 24/7 on our infrastructure, you can focus on developing your websites and applications as well as expanding your infrastructure.
What are the features of a VPS OVHcloud Portugal?
Our VPS solutions are designed for maximum control and flexibility, delivering excellent price/performance. An access to the root of your virtual server allows you to configure it the way you want. It is accompanied by a simple user interface, equipped with a panel of operating systems (Windows, Linux, etc.) ready to be launched with a click. You also have the ability to increase storage and add additional resources as needed. In addition to geolocation options and additional IP addresses, VPS Portugal solutions are equipped with our Anti-DDoS service to ensure you full protection in case of attack.
Hosting VPS sites by OVHcloud Portugal
A virtual private server (VPS) allows you to host your sites and applications in a fully isolated virtual environment. You can configure and manage it in the way that suits you. You can also deploy your VPS to any OVHcloud datacenter. With datacenters around the world, OVHcloud allows you to carry out your projects wherever you are. With additional low-cost geolocated IP combined with administrator access and many evolutionary possibilities, our VPS easily fits into a global referencing strategy for all growing businesses.
Geolocate your IPs in Portugal
With a VPS located in Portugal, you can optimize the reach and performance of your websites and applications, geolocating them in the site that most benefits you. All VPS accommodation solutions are available with a choice of 13 geolocations across Europe, including in Portugal. Through the OVHcloud Client Area, you can add up to 16 additional IP addresses. This includes the ability to add multiple IPs to a single virtual server to maximize its international reach and introduce new geographic locations as your organization develops.
What is a VPS, and what is it used for?
A virtual private server (VPS) can be used to host websites (e-commerce, content, media) and software applications (portals, extranets, collaborative solutions, wikis, CRM). Unlike shared hosting, the data is isolated onto a virtual machine which is dedicated to the user.
The VPS is a perfect compromise between web hosting plans and physical servers, combining reliability with the high performance of a dedicated server — but without the difficulty of managing a server's physical hardware.
Who are VPS solutions designed for?
Using a VPS requires basic knowledge of server administration. This knowledge is essential for managing the operating system (Linux, Windows, PrestaShop or WordPress) installed on the machine, and configuring the applications.
Think you might need a VPS, but don’t have the technical knowledge required? We recommend getting in touch with one of our partners.
If you would like to get guaranteed resources but don't know how to manage servers, we recommend Performance Web Hosting plans.
Can I host several websites on a VPS?
Yes. A VPS can be partitioned, and organised to suit your requirements. This means you can use it to host several websites or projects, by allocating a private space to each one. You choose the volume of each space, too. To simplify how you do this, you can install a web hosting control panel like Plesk or cPanel.
Will I get a domain name and email service included with my VPS?
VPS solutions do not include domain names or email services natively. These options are available directly from the OVHcloud Control Panel once your VPS is delivered.
How do I choose between a VPS and a web hosting plan?
Using a VPS is the next logical step up from using a web hosting plan. Virtual private servers offer a wider range of options, and more flexibility in terms of configuration, access and features (root access, Apache PHP.init). You can also install an SSL certificate and any other software you want.
However, we would like to emphasise the importance of choosing the right VPS for you. A VPS needs to be configured in a way that suits your application requirements, and the growth of your business.
What are the differences between VPS and Public Cloud solutions?
A Cloud VPS is a virtual machine optimised and designed to adapt to pre-production and production environments. It is a dedicated environment on which you can host one or more web projects.
The OVHcloud Public Cloud offers a multi-server infrastructure, with high availability for servers. vRack, a private network service, is also available with this solution.
What are the advantages of a VPS, compared to a dedicated server?
The advantage of a VPS is that you don’t have to worry about hardware management ------ like monitoring the status of hard disks, RAM, and CPU. They are adapted to host most types of web projects that are moderately sized.
We recommend using a dedicated server if you want to manage the hardware yourself, build more elaborate architectures, create an infrastructure that includes a private network (vRack), or deploy complex solutions other than web services.
As a general rule, users with a growing volume of web activity either move up to dedicated servers, or Public Cloud solutions. These services offer more complex, flexible infrastructures that can adapt to a high level of growth.
